Welcome to The Lawn Chair Philosophy Academy! On this page you will find free lessons which introduce techniques of philosophical reflection and expression, as well as lectures revolving around the philosophers featured in our Library Packages. Our Out of Context page builds from these introductory videos, pulling compelling quotes directly from the featured texts; encouraging further reflection and research over what those quotes could possibly mean. We present more progressive material on our Continental Chop Shop page, which explores the esoteric side of 20th Century thought. For you adventurous thinkers out there, we offer a window to the technical world of scholarly research and presentations on our Scholar Spotlight page. And we bring all this theory down to earth on our Philosophy in Motion page, which offers interviews covering the practical application of high-falutin philosophy.

(Also note – for some reason, while the introductory lecture videos in the drop-down boxes reliably load on smartphones and other tablets, they only load on PCs and laptops when they feel so inclined . . . If you are having trouble loading the lecture videos in the drop down boxes, look for them in our LCP Academy YouTube Channel)
